Falcons Coaching Staff: Alvin Reynolds No Longer Defensive Backs Coach

Monday, the Atlanta Falcons announced defensive backs coach Alvin Reynolds has been let go. This makes three position coaches the Falcons will need to replace this offseason, with offensive linemen and quarterbacks also currently coachless.

Reynolds was with the Falcons since 2008, coming aboard along with Mike Smith and Brian VanGorder. With new DC Mike Nolan taking over, it's natural to expect at least one position to change hands, and there's no guarantee this will be the only switch.

The Falcons ranked in the lower half of the NFL in passing yards allowed every season from 2008 through 2011. Here's a look at the resume that led to Reynolds' Falcons hire:

  • 2003-2007 -- Defensive Backs Coach // Jacksonville Jaguars
  • 1999-2002 -- Defensive Assistant // Carolina Panthers
  • 1996-1998 -- Secondary Coach // Baltimore Ravens
  • 1993-1995 -- Defensive Assistant // Denver Broncos
  • 1990-1992 -- Assist. Head Coach/Secondary Coach // Indiana State Univ.
  • 1983-1989 -- Secondary Coach // Indiana State University
  • 1982 -- Graduate Assistant // Indiana State University
